How to Make a Bail for a Flat Pendant
We all love the large, flat pendants, but hanging them can be problematic. Here is a solution that looks nice, and you can make yourself!
If you want a shorter or longer bail, simply cut your wire different lengths. Play with this technique to figure out what looks best to your eye. You can also layer charms onto the front of your pendants to give them more personality.
Cut a piece of sterling silver 20 gauge wire to a length of 4 inches. Make a simple loop at one end. For detailed instructions on how to make a simple loop, look in the Handy Tips
section of the Learning Center.
Measure one inch of the wire away from the loop. With your chain nose pliers, bend the wire to a 90 degree angle.
Put your pendant on the wire and make another bend with your chain nose pliers so that the two ends of the wire are pointing toward one another.
